House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) called Sunday for the Obama administration to lead its allies' efforts in Syria, but urged against the deployment of any U.S. troops to the country.

"Our Arab League partners are already in Syria and trying to provide help to the opposition," Rogers said on CBS News's "Face The Nation." "I argue with U.S. leadership -- and again this is not boots on the ground -- U.S. leadership through intelligence and training and other things ... could be hugely helpful."

He added: "We really don't want to be the sheriff, but we do want to be the coach."
